Yes it looks like a dive and it is. But isn't that the "real" Key West of days gone by before the circus came to town? It's right on the water, always has live entertainment, is full of local characters morning, afternoon and night including the crews from the tourist boats. There are no real walls, the floor is crushed coral, dogs are welcome and we were joined at our table by a rooster who hopped up on a free stool.

Since we had been out sailing all afternoon on one of the classic schooners that docks in front of the restaurant we were feeling like old salts and Schooners fit our state of mind to a tee.

The menu is pretty wide ranging with the emphasis on local seafood. We liked the smoked fish dip and the crab/avocado salad. The rum drinks were good (beware the Rum Runner) although they used Pina Colada mix in my Painkiller which is NOT how you make a Painkiller.

Our waiter was friendly, fast and efficient and like most locals had a story of mid-life crisis, dropping out of Wall Street to sail the Caribbean and then never going back. Very entertaining as he showed us pics of the boat he lives on in the harbor.

There were 5 of us and we all loved the fun atmosphere and the trip back in time.
